Designed by Mackey Mitchell Architects and built by S.M. Wilson, the CID school is an acoustically-friendly environment where students who are deaf and hard of hearing learn to listen and talk. Located in the Washington University Medical Center community, the CID school is dedicated to excellence in listening and spoken language education.
The school contains small classrooms for individualized learning. It also contains a family living room, children’s library, a gym, a music and drama room, an art room, discovery rooms, state-of-the-art pediatric audiology facilities, pull-out rooms for speech-language and occupational therapy, observation rooms and a gym. Our award-winning facilities were updated with input from parents, teachers, audiologists and other professionals.
The Joanne Parrish Knight Family Center, Anabeth and John Weil Early Childhood Learning Center, Virginia J. Browning Primary School, Martha E. Jones Pediatric Audiology Center and Emerson Center for Professional Development are contained within the school.
Outside areas include gardens, a fenced-in playground, an open field for sports and nearby Forest Park, with numerous natural settings to explore.
